DI2E Plugfest 2015: Helping to Combat the Data Explosion in the Open Seas

Published on May 19, 2015

With the U.S. Navy dealing in challenging environments such as open oceans for effectively supporting mission efforts, the right data needs to be accessed and leveraged at all times.

In addition, the Navy is dealing with a data tipping point where today’s “data explosion” is only become more challenging – as sensors and other data sources continue to proliferate.

At DI2E Plugfest 2015, Charles J. Gassert, Jr., DCGS-N Enterprise Assistant Program Manager (APM) discussed these challenges, as well as how DCGS-N Increment 2 will help shorten targeting timelines and provide real-time automated aggregation, correlation, and fusion of all-source intelligence.

“Our environment can be challenging because analysis often happens in the middle of the ocean,” said Gassert. “We have some very unique requirements and continually need cross-functional domain awareness.”

This is why DCGS-N Increment 2 will help fuse all-source intelligence and provide near real-time analysis of all events and activities, which aid in situational awareness. Ultimately, this will help in detecting enemy threats in highly challenging environments like the open ocean.
